Great Tour and individual attention!!

We booked the private tour just from searching online and could not have been happier with the overall experience. Fabiana was great - very informative and took pictures of us when we wanted. She took the pace which was good for us for the tour instead of rushing us through or giving us so much information which could have been overwhelming. Highly recommend this tour!!

Visite passionnante

Guide très compétente et passionnée par son métier. A su captiver notre attention tout au long de la visite. S'exprimant parfaitement en français, elle nous a permis d'échanger facilement sur l'histoire et les richesses que nous avons visitées, ce qui a rendu la visite très vivante et enrichissante. Nous n'avons pas vu le temps passer.
